Is DB going to be opened back up? - Damn if i don't miss some of the BS that went on down there, didn't do much posting but some of the guys that do are funny as hell!

Gone for the foreseeable future.

There was some funny stuff, but most of it was either really stupid or really borderline. We're not against borderline (per se), but sponsoring a place where people get stupid, angry, butthurt, and temper-tantrum-ish isn't really that good for the board.

I doubt it will ever come back. Just my $0.02...

Gotta agree there.
I always enjoyed the drinking threads.
But it seems like just about everythng else
turned into a name-calling contest.

Of course, the counter point would be that it was advertised as a free-fire zone where you might get stupid, angry, butt-hurt and throw temper tantrums as well as enter at your own risk.

It was like clicking on a site that advertised fat chick p0rn. It may be disgusting and revolting, but you knew what you were getting when you went there.

Can't dispute that! Probably should have had a little warning like, "Candy asses and those patrolling for Political Correctness compliance should not bother entering Dumping Brass".

The problem was that what went on down there got way out of control and then was spilling out and over just about everything else in other Forums.

Dumping Brass a place to vent ? Maybe.

Do we really need it ? I don't think so.

We are SUPPOSED to be adults. Maybe acting like it would be a good thing ?

It may have spilled out a wee bit before but nothing like it now is. It's been bubbling up through the floorboards lately all over the place.

I foresee DB will be back just shy of a fortnight after the next full moon! :eek:

I say good riddance. If it is too foul to be published in the newspaper, then it has no place here.

If it is in fact too foul, then it does not belong on any web site. It was a pretty good idea to have one section where good nature bantering and jousting could take place but when it got to the nasty gay type innuendos, then there was a damn good reason to pull the old plug to stop the absolute trash talk. IMHO

Can't argue with that (not trying to), but I think that the main problem is that it is just like gambling (or any other thing that people think they can 'handle') - most people can. Some people can't. And those who can't think that they are the ones that can. And won't be told otherwise. In Vegas they take your money until they throw your ass out. W.E.G. (and I assume Jen) decided to close the Casino for the greater good.

I miss CE's poetry, innuendo, and creativity. I miss Radio's '70s era videos and all the responses. And, I'll admit, I used to laugh when some unnamed person from Florida used to make all the Hughmo ghey jokes, but DB lately hasn't been what DB was 7 or 8 years ago when I started reading. Lately it is/was hateful, angry, and stupid - and while it was always the third, I doubt it was ever meant to be the first two...

You're right. All of that can be traced to five or six posters. Some of whom were given the ax, some of whom posted in this thread. You'll never get rid of the problem until you get rid of the people who created them. Whacking half and leaving half is just leaving more problems to grow.

(Edited to be polite and courteous) Hey there sport, you may want to go back and check which member did the very last post in DB and read it. It was clearly someone(above the law mentality) who has an issue with authority and was slinging mud at the administration here. Do you think just MAYBE this had something to do with why DB was shut down? I believe the insults and disrespect towards the management who run this fine forum is the main reason for the closure of DB. It was happening quite frequently in DB from just a handful of members, a few of them now banned and a few who spouted off against how this site was being run are for some odd reason still here. Those who got banned were those who refused to listen to managements requests, not those who were exchanging insults with one another. Let's get the facts straight here sport!

It just amazes me how some people can lay blame elsewhere when the whole problem originated from themselves or their friends. I suppose when someone uses this technique in the workplace it's hard to keep from doing it elsewhere.

Sport,

Your whole post reminds me of the guy who pokes a dude through his face mask in a football game and then does a dive when he gets pushed after the whistle to draw the unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. Neither party is blameless in this scenario. I'm absolutely friends with Mike, but I am not defending his conduct. I am merely pointing out that his posts did not exist in a vacuum.

As for what I do for a living, it has little to nothing to do with what I post here. Well, except for that I usually use proper spelling and grammar, but that shouldn't distinguish me from other well educated people.

As for getting my facts straight, I have been on this board for a long time, under the same user name. Can you say the same?

The underlying issue though is that people fail to act as adults at times...I am certainly guilty of it. I kinda though that DB did in fact serve a purpose by keeping the mud-slinging and garbage somewhat controlled by giving it a place to happen without stinking up the rest of the board. However with it gone perhaps there will be more frequent use of the Timeout Hammer until people get the picture.

Who mentioned Mike? I thought this thread was about the DB closure. Mike is old news, he left well before DB went down I thought. As for him leaving, I was under the impression he got in trouble for a conflict with management which had nothing to do with him using vile language on asst. members here.

As for you and a few other busybodys calling for more members to be banned it would be helpful if one of you could state where and how the member(s) you want gone committed the bannable offense. If you can't back up your unfounded bs with some fact please cease the snivelling and whining about how unfair life is. Give it a rest, the crying game is getting old.

You may have a problem doing this, but I never confuse this place with real life. As for the crying game, it's your set of words, not mine. Have fun with it.

Frankly, things have been downright civil on this board.

I think the point has been made: open DB and remove the stipulation that it is a place to start flamewars; that intentional flamewars and slandering are forbidden under pain of punishment. We need a place for light-hearted palaver.

I know I took part in the thing with Dean that resulted in the previous lock-down, but I learned a lot from that as I assume many of the parties involved have learned from the current lock-down.

Just my .02

This is hilarious:rofl:

You are taking this WAY too serious dude. I actually just cost you money by reacting to unintelligent rambling . Money you had absolutely no intention of parting with until you decided to engage the noob with insults. That is just too darn funny!

Noooo. DB still exists but it's reopening may take a multitude of very "polite requests" to get it operational once again.... Everyone has hopefully learned their lesson.:D
